ARCHIVE - Technology Basics for Those Who Have Always Been Curious

  • 01/23/2025
  • 7:30 PM - 8:30 PM
  • On Demand


When it comes to technology, we are almost always quick to adopt but slow to adapt. This tendency to gravitate to the newest thing can expose us and make us vulnerable. If we do adapt to technology, we often find ourselves doing things out of habit because someone told us to, not because we know why.

In the first half of this webinar, we will go over the basics of data storage, why large name cloud server providers might not be your best option for storing your data, the difference between a bit and a byte, and best practices for storing your own data including hosting your own cloud server.

In the second half of the webinar, we will discuss encryption, hacking and password best practices

Learn how information is encrypted, learn how encrypted information is decrypted, hacked, and how to select a truly secure password. Also learn what the most common passwords are and how to avoid them.
